Anyone used this stuff and was it any good??
Seems to be a lot of "nudity" in the range!!

I'm not sure if it is the same procedure like for "stucco veneziano", what is a method of serveral layers of fine colored render.
I know that you could buy it back in Europe premixed, but the professionals mostly have their own resopy....base is gypsum.

Sounds easy and is a pain in the ass job.
The more very thinn layers of the render applied with a stainless spatula (!) the better it looks.
Finally it gets a wax polish to intensivy the marble effect.

If done well it really looks like marble!
